The X53E is a seriously powerful basic notebook, and for those who don’t need much graphics rendering power it’s a compelling option.
It’s certainly got a large price tag, but the fast processor and excellent build quality more than justify the premium pricing.
If you need a netbook with more graphics rendering grunt than what’s normal, the 1015BX is a pretty well-priced option.
Many gaming notebooks focus on the graphics card at the expense of other specs, but this one has taken a different and welcome approach.
While this basic notebook costs a bit more than most, it hasn’t compromised on either RAM or HDD space.
If you like the Transformer Prime but can’t afford it, then the more wallet-friendly Transformer Pad might be a worthy alternative.
Gaming notebooks with SSD drives are becoming more common, and this example has done so without compromising specs.
The feature set of this gaming notebook is superb, and for the price it’s one of the most well rounded examples of its kind available.
Notebooks don’t generally have very good sound, but the N55SF’s combination of strong speakers and an external subwoofer is superb.
This 3D capable gaming notebook has an unbelievably beefy set of specs, so while pricey it’s still good value for money.
